Avraham's son - Ze'ev Zeid, who was also in love with wine making, was finally privileged to formally establish the winery bearing the family name - Teperberg. The winery, built within the walls of Jerusalem, was the expression of Jewish revival in the Land of Israel and grew to become a strong and prosperous winery, despite the many difficulties that characterized the period.

Mordechai Shimon Teperberg, son of Ze'ev, took the winery's management reins. This period of difficulties and pogroms did not pass over the winery, which was the aim of repeated attacks, yet it was assisted by the Austrian Consulate, which sponsored its Jewish citizens in the Land of Israel. The winery began to bloom. It was also chosen as the official Supplier of wine and alcohol to the Austrian army in Palestine. In 1925 the winery moved from the Old City to Romema and ascended to new heights.

1945 4th Generation

The brothers Yitzhak and Menachem are privileged to run the family winery, which - upon the establishment of the State - returns to the Old City of Jerusalem. In those years, the winery had already established its name as producer of fine wine in Israel. Upon the death of Yitzhak in 1960 Menachem became the winery's manager. The winery continued to improve and demand increased. Therefore, the winery once again moved to a larger locationin the Motza area near Jerusalem.

1984 5th Generation

Motti Teperberg, son of Avraham's great-grandson, who used to step on the grapes at the winery in Machaneh Yehuda, took the management reigns and sharpened the art of winemaking, creating a personalized touch and improving the winery's fermentation process. In 2006 the winery moved to its new premises opposite Kibbutz Tzora in the Judenean hills near Jerusalem. The winery now corresponds with the vision that guided the Teperberg family forever- maintaining the ancient winemaking tradition, while constantly improving and creating a clear signature based on firm roots. Five generations passed down from father to son, observantly preserving a family tradition.
